[Michael Orlansky]"Is there a quick way to tell what plugins someone used in a project other than going through each comp and pre-comp and twirling down every layer to see if an effect was applied to it?"
Yes. Use Collect files [link], and check the box for "Generate report only." The effects used will be listed in the text file this creates.
